Description: Awarded a Silver Medal by the International Film and TV Festival in New York, this film illustrates new developments in ocean research methods sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The film shows submersibles including William Beebe’s bathysphere, Auguste Piccard's and the Navy’s bathyscaphe TRIESTE, and the Navy’s TURTLE. The film tells how the scientists study the deep ocean utilizing deep submersibles to study the deep scattering layer, transport of sediments, sampling of waters, and the collection of ocean specimens. Eric Baron of U.S. Navy Electronic Laboratory talks about Trieste 1. The film shows the U.S. Naval Electronic Laboratory’s Oceanographic Research Tower off Mission Beach, San Diego, and Eugene LaFond discusses its features and use. Scripps’ John Isaacs discusses his Bumblebee Buoys and use. The film shows General Dynamics Convair Division’s forty foot diameter Monster Buoy, and Scripps’ FLIP (Floating Instrument Platform), as well as two- and three-legged models of FLIP. [Bob Beador], an engineer at the Naval Undersea Research and Development Center, discusses oceanographic platform model designs. Fletcher’s Ice Island or T3 is shown. Jerry D. Stachiw, Navy materials specialist, discusses transparent acrylic spheres for submersibles and undersea observations including NEMO, the Navy Experimental Manned Observery. William Evans of the Naval Undersea Research Center discusses the use of the Sea-See catamaran and its acrylic hemisphere for viewing marine mammals and sharks underwater. Will Forman of the Naval Undersea Research Center discusses the unmanned Deep View remotely operated vehicle with an acrylic observation sphere. Scripps’ Victor Anderson demonstrates RUM (Remote Underwater Manipulator) and ORB (Ocean Research Buoy).
